The new BARE X-Mission is a lightweight technical drysuit designed to meet DIR and cave diving demands.

High performance dive gear manufacturer BARE has made sure of this by designing the suit in collaboration with those very people.

slim fit minimises bulk

The X-Mission will sit alongside the company’s other technical drysuit, the HDC Expedition.

However, it’s a different animal in several respects. Firstly, the X-Mission is lightweight. And we’re not talking quality here, we’re talking weight: just 3.4kgs, including boots and valves.

Secondly it’s a slim fit, which minimises bulk and improves the hydrodynamics. Useful when you’re squeezing through a sump. Pie lovers won’t be happy, but then they should beware of sumps altogether.

Like the HDC, the X-Mission is a tri-laminate suit, although constructed of a new nylon RipStop material. It can be adjusted using an elastic toggle at the rear, and comes with telescopic torso, adjustable pockets, protection for an argon hose, and can be fitted with a P-valve.

It will be available in that discerning British diver’s favourite colour – black, or the Santi-busting red/black combination shown here.

The X-Mission drysuit can be ordered from BARE diving UK dealers now, priced RRP £1,529.15.
